The saga of the Ricin letters originating out of Tupelo, Mississippi has taken another legal turn.
Paul Kevin Curtis was originally arrested and accused of sending letters laced with Ricin to various individuals, including a judge, until information came to light that he had been framed by one James E. Dutschke.
In 2013, Paul Kevin Curtis filed a lawsuit in Alcorn County Circuit Court in Mississippi against James E. Dutschke.
Mr. Curtis’s attorney, Christie McCoy, gave a statement in an interview after the filing regarding the Government’s role in Mr. Curtis’s arrest. McCoy said that, ultimately Dutschke was the one who “put the wheels in motion,” and that “this does not in any way negate the responsibility of the government”.
Well, it looks like Paul Kevin Curtis and his lawyers Christie McCoy and Hal Neilson are following up on the 2013 suit and comments about the federal government’s responsibility.
According to the Clarion Ledger, on April 30th, 2015 an eighteen page complaint was filed against the U.S. Federal government specifically naming the FBI, US Attorney’s office, the DOJ and the Department of Homeland Security regarding violations of Paul Kevin Curtis’s civil rights.
Within the complaint are demands for a trial jury, and ask for damages against the United States government.
When updates are made available to this story, we will post them.
